The wedding arch is a traditional design element often used as the ceremony's focal point, as entries and exits, or even in the reception design. Sometimes referred to as "an arbor," this design feature provides a frame for vows, establishes the doorway to a space, or helps a vast space feel that much more intimate (plus, it looks great in photos). In religious ceremonies, arches symbolize a range of sentiments, from the home a couple will build together, to a sign of protection.
A wedding arch can consist of flowers, branches, wooden structures, mirrors, and beyond. They can come in any shape as well; think: crescent, pointed, square, rectangular, or geometric.
